30 Days of Knitting Questions – Day 1

I was reading blog posts during lunch one day and came across a reference to a tumblr account Crafts and Such that had a list of 30 questions; one for each day. Since I have not been blogging as much I want I thought this would be a great start for the new month.

Day 1: What was your first finished project?

I’m so glad this question asked about the first finished project as I had lots of learning “projects” I abandoned.  The very first project I completed was a purple hat with a gray ribbed brim.  It was a hat that I knit flat and then sewed together. I remember being so upset that I used the mattress stitch in purple and then I could see it on the gray brim that was rolled up.This is also the one and only hat that I did not make in the round.

My very next project was cabled fingerless gloves from Knitty called Fetching.  I was ambitious after finishing that hat; I had to learn cables, DPNs, and a new bindoff.  Not ambitious enough to use the nice cashmere yarn it called for but I did finish them in a nice safe acrylic. Plus wanting those gloves is what got me started knitting in the first place.  I had forgotten that.  I think I ended up with 3 pairs of these.
